HP Officejet Pro 8500A Plus - Black Ink Wont Print - Printer Keeps Cleaning Printhead

Hi,

 

i just replaced two of the toner cartridges (Cyan and Magenta) and once my printer re-sets itself, it no longer prints black toner and it seems to be caught in a cycle of cleaning the printhead over and over again.  The device was working yesterday without issue and i have replaced the toner with genuine HP cartridges. All toner cartridges are full.

 

The printer does not display any error messages.  When cleaning the printhead, it's now making a squeaking sound. Argh!


Any suggestions???
